It's a birthday

How is your "hustle & bustle" month starting out? Have you made a point of going slow or do you like to bucket-up and enjoy the crazy ride that it can become! Our month will certainly be that! C-R-A-Z-Y!! We're still in Arizona (I still post DAILY on our family blog and will be moving back to the frozen north in a few weeks. So we will be moving about 4 days BEFORE Christmas. yeah, that kind of crazy. But you know what, just like everything else, you take it a little at a time. I know I need to get my shopping done and gifts wrapped before we leave, we have a little tree set up here with handmade decorations that we'll continue to make while we're here and simply set that back up in Fort Mac. It's all good. We've all ready been invited out for Christmas dinner - isn't that awesome. All those little details get sorted out, so why lose energy worrying about it all. :)
Being here, there & everywhere the past seven months (WOW, have we been gone that long!!) I've still been able to get birthday cards made & mailed out (*TOOT, TOOT!*) although I cannot claim they were all ON TIME, they were all sent out. These ones were for my sister-in-laws who both have November birthday's. I was able to use one sheet of 6x6 Basic Grey design paper and make two cards. Each slightly different.
Merry Christmas
Very simple (has been my theme again) - I did a little paper-piecing on her apron and some sponging around the edges (I thought it matched well with the sponge effect that was already on the DS paper). I also pulled out my dew drops which I so love. I was able to order some more while I've been down here, so you'll be seeing them on my cards again. Still haven't found anyone in Canada selling this gems!
Basically the same card. Same "tag" and expression, but on this one, I added her birthday 'date' on the side and used the dew drops above her.
